*Disaster Contingency Preps*
The Preparation Needs Assessment List
By: Helimech
08 March, 2008

This is a table I made that allows me to check where I am lacking in my preps. You can see how I have broken it down, I have kept it simple and it works for me.

As I prep for new contingencies I can add them to the bottom of the table. I thought some folks might find this useful.

I fill it out by simply checking off the squares as my preps reach a point where I am comfortable with them. You could also fill in a quantity and/or a location for the preps. For the location, if you store preps in totes, you could number the totes and put the tote number in the appropriate box. Sometimes a date for when the first perishable items will need to be replaced by would help.

I've attached an editable Microsoft Word and a Microsoft Excel file after the example table below.
